Welcome to the Hops With Heart Winter Warm-Up Blog Hop, organized by romance author Jane Wakely. This hop is running from Dec 19–22, and features a Grand Prize of a $75 Amazon gift card for one lucky winner. That’s a lot of XXXmas shopping dough!
To add to the festivities, each blog participating in the hop will be offering even more holiday prizes – so be sure to hop around to all of the sites to see what else you can win.
Here at The Buttontapper, you could win a digital copy of my XXXmas erotica short story, Santa, Baby, along with digital copies of parts 1 and 2 of my Naked Montreal series. (These are all erotic in nature, so winners must be 18+.)
But first, let’s talk about LOVE.
Everybody loves a good holiday romance, right? I mean, Katharine Ashe (author of Kisses, She Wrote) has compiled an enormous list of Christmas romance books, so clearly they’re popular!
I’ve recently read a couple of great holiday romances for those who enjoy fantasizing about getting away from the humdrum of snow shoveling and workaday worries. The first was Belinda Jones’ Winter Wonderland, set in Quebec City and starting off a snowy adventure in the frosty cave of an ice hotel. Jones really captures the essence of Quebec’s winter festival, outdoorsy fun, and even includes a mischievous take on Bonhomme, the snowman mascot of the festivities, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
The second holiday romance I highly recommend is Heather Hiestand’s Christmas Delights, an historical romance set in Victorian England. This one was a little naughtier than Winter Wonderland, with some steamy scenes between feisty widow Lady Victoria Allen-Hill and steam engine tinkerer Lewis Noble.
Both of these books go great with a steaming mug of cocoa and a roaring fireplace. And, in my case, a purring cat to curl up in my lap while I read.
Have you read any good holiday love stories this year? Tell me your favorite in the comments section for your chance to win copies of Naked Montreal (parts 1 and 2) and Santa, Baby!
